Summit League Championship Betting Preview: IPFW Mastodons vs. North Dakota State Bison

03.11.2014     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Summit League Championship
IPFW vs. North Dakota State
6 pm PT, Sioux Falls, ND
CRIS Opener:
North Dakota State -8 O/U 142.5
CRIS Current: North Dakota State -8 O/U 142
Rob Veno Power Rating: North Dakota State -7.5

Quick Take: Fort Wayne was the no. 2 seed but needed two wins to reach the championship. They had a day off in between games and didn't put forth much effort in their 85-47 first round victory over IUPUI. NDSU was the top seed and has played only one game since March 1. They cruised past Denver, 83-48, in the semifinals. Despite ranking seventh in the league in defensive efficiency (1.08 points per possession allowed), IPFW has held four of its last five foes to under 1.00 ppp. The Bison ranked no. 1 in both offensive (1.15) and defensive (0.99) efficiency. The two teams split during the regular season with the home side prevailing in both contests.

West Coast Conference Championship
BYU vs. Gonzaga
6 pm PT, Las Vegas, Nev.
CRIS Opener:
Gonzaga -3.5 O/U 4
CRIS Current: Gonzaga -4 O/U 148
Rob Veno Power Rating: Gonzaga -3

Quick Take: BYU scored only six points the final 10 minutes of regulation against San Francisco but went on the win in overtime. Gonzaga dominated Saint Mary's, 70-54. The Zags have been to 16 straight WCC title games (11-5 SU). The home side won both meetings during the regular season. Interesting that BYU dominated the glass in both contests with a combined 74-57 edge including 27 offensive rebounds. This despite  the Zags allowing the lowest offensive rebounding rate in the  WCC.

Quotes: Gonzaga head coach Mark Few on establishing dominance in the paint...

"I think we got back to probably being a more physical team, a rebounding team," GU coach Mark

Horizon League Championship
UW-Milwaukee vs. Wright State
4 pm PT, Dayton, Ohio
CRIS Opener:
Wright State -6 O/U 129
CRIS Current: Wright State -6 O/U 129
Rob Veno Power Rating: Wright State -8

Quick Take: A last second shift in venue as top seed and host UW-Green Bay fell to UW-Milwaukee on Saturday. The finals now move to the top remaining seed, Wright State. Milwaukee finished only 7-9 in conference play and ranked near the bottom in both offensive (0.98 points per possession) and defensive (1.06 ppp allowed) efficiency. The Raiders have won six straight and finished with the top defense in the Horizon (0.95). The two teams split during the regular season with the home side winning both meetings. In a conference where littered with strong home courts Milwaukee has proven capable on the road with wins at Oakland, UIC, Detroit, and Green Bay twice.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Bowling Green Falcons at Northern Illinois Huskies

03.10.2014     08:11 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Bowling Green at Northern Illinois -3 O/U 114.5
Recommendation: Northern Illinois

Amazing transformation by the Northern Illinois Huskies as they’ve become massive money makers going 10-0-2 ATS since late January. NIU has only been cast in the role of a favorite just twice during that span but those games resulted in easy 25 and 14 point wins and covers as -3.5 versus Central Michigan (88-63 Feb 12) and -7 against Ball State (70-56 2 days ago). It’s somewhat difficult to understand the reasoning behind the Huskies sudden ability to cash tickets since statistically there is little to no difference between last season and this season where offensive and defensive numbers are concerned. What really shows up under a close examination is the tremendous fall off at the top of the MAC which in my opinion has allowed NIU to become more competitive and cover games they couldn’t last year.

Power ratings show a steep drop by last year’s league kingpins Akron, Ohio, and Kent State which has turned this conference into a pile of mediocrity. Northern Illinois showed back on January 12 at Bowling Green that in this contest of style Read more

So-Con Tournament Championship Betting Preview: Western Carolina Catamounts vs. Wofford Terriers

03.10.2014     07:55 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Southern Conference Tournament Championship
Western Carolina vs. Wofford
6 pm PT, Asheville, NC
CRIS Opener:
Wofford -3 O/U 131
CRIS Current: Wofford -3 O/U 131
Rob Veno Power Rating: Wofford -4

Quick Take: Wofford was at one point 7-10 overall and 2-3 in So-Con play but finished 11-5 and earned the no. 3 seed. The Terriers ranked second in both offensive (1.10 points per possession) and defensive (1.00 ppp allowed) efficiency. Western Carolina was the fifth seed and beat both Elon and Davidson by 2. Wofford won the only regular season meeting, 71-60 at home. Turnovers could be the key to the game. Wofford has the lowest offensive TO rate in the league whereas WCU has the best defensive TO rate. During the regular season matchup, Wofford won the turnover battle 11-14. As a conference, the quality of play of the So-Con has diminished each of the past four seasons. According to Ken Pomery’s rankings, the league ranked 19th out of 33 in 2011, 24th in 2012, 28th in 2013, and 30th this season.

Colonial Tournament Championship Betting Preview: William & Mary Tribe vs. Delaware Blue Hens

03.10.2014     07:49 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Colonial Tournament Championship
William & Mary vs. Delaware
4 pm PT, Baltimore, MD
CRIS Opener:
Delaware -4.5 O/U 152
CRIS Current: Delaware -4.5 O/U 153
Rob Veno Power Rating: Delaware -3

Quick Take: Both squads met twice during the regular season with Delaware winning both games, 89-72 and 76-71. Statistically, William & Mary ranks no. 1 in the CAA in offensive efficiency (1.14 points per possession) but dead last in defensive efficiency (1.12 ppp allowed). Delaware ranks third in both categories. The Blue Hens are also the fastest team in the league at nearly 70 possessions per game.

Quotes: Tribe head coach Tony Shaver on Delaware...

"Delaware is one of the best offensive teams I've seen in this league since I've been here," said Shaver, in his 11th season at William & Mary. "They have so many explosive players. I would normally sit here and tell

MAAC Tournament Championship Betting Preview: Iona Gaels vs. Manhattan Jaspers

MAAC Tournament Championship
Manhattan vs. Iona
4 pm PT, Springfield, Mass.
CRIS Opener:
Manhattan pk O/U 157
CRIS Current: Manhattan -1.5 O/U 157
Rob Veno Power Rating: Iona -1.5

Quick Take: A rematch of last year's title game that saw Iona prevail, 60-57. Offense vs. defense is the main theme; the Gaels rank tops in the conference in virtually every offensive category including efficiency (1.19 points per possession). Meanwhile the same can be said for the Jaspers defensively. They allowed only 0.95 ppp while the Gaels surrendered 1.06. Iona won the first meeting at home 85-73 after trailing by six in the second half. Manhattan returned the favor with an 80-77 OT win on its home floor.

Quote: Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello on the level of play in the MAAC...

"Iona's a very dangerous team, and it says how good this league is," Masiello said.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Betting Conference Tournaments

03.10.2014     07:33 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
The Big Dance gets all the headlines; all the media attention.  And it makes sense why that happens.  College basketball is way too big for the average fan.  More than 350 teams in more than 30 conferences are simply too much for non-hardcore hoops aficionados to handle.
And then there’s the bracket factor.  The entire country fills out brackets.  They’re easy to fill out, the seedings make sense to Joe Public, and after the first round, most of the obscure teams are gone.  Those obscure teams that survive are now public darlings, Cinderella stories that casual fans can understand and follow.

Forget fans – I’m no casual fan, and if you’re reading this, you probably aren’t either.  We’re sports bettors.  And for serious college basketball bettors, there’s absolutely no comparison between this week and next week.  This week, we’ve got dozens of Little Dances, the conference tournaments that are a sports bettors dream.  Next week, for the Big Dance, it’s still a betting bonanza, but not quite as good.  Here are my Top 6 reasons why.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Penn State Nittany Lions at Minnesota Golden Gophers

03.09.2014     08:28 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Penn State +7 at Minnesota O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Penn State

Is Minnesota downright desperate for a victory today against Penn State? You damn right it is. Does desperation translate into success? Negative. Minnesota is going in the wrong direction. Richard Pitino's team has lost seven of its last 10 games, making a victory at The Barn tonight vs. PSU an absolute must. Not only that, but then the Gophers are going to most likely need a pair of wins at next week's Big Ten Tournament in order to feel good about their chances of earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Penn State is playing solid basketball right now, covering the number in each of its last three games. The Nittany Lions have won outright in three of their last five road assignments, including a 59-32 win at Northwestern on Thursday night. PSU probably has the most underrated backcourt in the country. Coming off a torn ACL last season, senior point guard Tim Frazier has enjoyed another stellar campaign to cap off what has been an outstanding collegiate career. Frazier has scored in double figures in nine consecutive games. The fifth-year senior is averaging 15.6 Read more
